Alan Berg Interview – “Learning Analytics Impacting on National Policy”


In this interview recorded at the LAK15 conference Alan Berg, Learning Analytics Community Officer for the Apereo Foundation, and the Innovation Group at the University of Amsterdam discusses how learning analytics is evolving. Community events are helping to spread “understanding of what others are doing” he says. And the LACE project Privacy and Ethics workshops are starting to “impact on national and european policy” for learning analytics. For the future he predicts that learning analytics skills will become more ubiquitous and hopes that the conversation will become more about adaptive content and pedagogy and less about the tools and techniques. This video was recorded for LACE by Tore Hoel, Hendrik Drachsler and Maren Scheffel and is available on the LACE project YouTube channel.
